He started his career in 1996 with Milwaukee Bucks and made his first three-pointer on Nov. 1, 1996, against the Philadelphia 76ers. Nine years later, on April 7, 2006, he was on the second place in all-time list, trailing only Reggie Miller.

    2. Reggie Miller– 2560

    Reggie Miller was the leading three point shooter, with 2560 until Ray Allen surpassed him. He established his reputation as a prolific long range shooter in the very first season of his professional career when he hit 61 three pointers in 1987-88 season, most by any rookie in NBA. In later years, he emerged as a clutch performer as well, who can score and hit three pointers when his team needs the most.

    3. Jason Kidd– 1988

    Jason Kidd is not as natural and accurate three point shooter as the aforementioned players. Still, he is in the third place on all the made three pointers list with 1988. He shoots only 35 percent beyond the three point arc, less than any player in this list.
